Restore quarantined items

When McAfee quarantines items, it encrypts and isolates them in a folder to prevent the files, programs, or cookies from harming your PC.

If you quarantined an item by mistake, or if you learn that an item on the list does not pose a security threat, you can remove it from quarantine.

1 Open the Quarantined and Trusted Items page.
2 Click Quarantined Items or Quarantined Potentially Unwanted Programs to display the list of quarantined threats.
3 From the list, select the item that you want to remove from quarantine, and click Restore.
Be careful which items you choose to remove from quarantine. These items are threats that could potentially harm your system.
